The Cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Ahmed bin-Daghr held a meeting in the temporary capital Aden on Saturday, after two days since they returned from al Riyadh.
The Cabinet discussed a number of internal and external developments including the dramatic army gains achieved, with help from the Arab Coalition, against the Houthi rebels, said Saba News Agency.
The government is bent on supporting the efforts to broker and achieve a just lasting peace as per the agreed upon terms of reference; the GCC initiative, its executive mechanism, the outcomes of the National Dialogue and the UN Security Council resolutions, particularly resolution 2216.
